QTIC's Top Tourism Town Awards are back in 2022 to recognise Queensland’s diverse and outstanding regional destinations.

The  Awards aim to recognise and reward towns that work together with their tourism operators, businesses and local community to make their destination the best it can be. The towns must offer an amazing visitor experience, demonstrate strong commitment and encourage tourism and increased visitation. 


In 2022 there are three award categories: 


Top Tourism Town - those with a population over 5,000  
Top Small Tourism Town – those with a population between 5,000 and 1,500
Top Tiny Tourism Town - those with a population below 1,500
